The Winning Season was picked up at last year Sundance Film Festival, but it’s just now finally making its way to theaters.  The film stars Sam Rockwell as a down-and-out shlub who’s recruited to coach a high-school girls’ basketball team.  The trailer makes the movie look painfully saccharine and predictable, but Steve said he heard good things about it from folks that saw it at Sundance.  As for me, I’ll see anything with Rockwell (except for Gentlemen Broncos; I hear that movie causes diseases).

Hit the jump to check out the trailer, images, and poster for the flick.  Written and directed by James C. Strouse and co-starring Emma Roberts and Rob Corddry, The Winning Season opens in New York and LA on September 3rd.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Winning Season:

Set in suburban Indiana, the film stars Rockwell as Bill Greaves, an adult misfit recruited by the local high school principal (Corddry) to coach the school’s floundering girls’ basketball team.  Initially retreating from what appears to be a hopeless situation, Bill perseveres and manages to help the team and its captain (Roberts) ratchet up its competitive spirit, while the girls offer Bill a renewed life focus.  THE WINNING SEASON also stars Shareeka Epps, Emily Rios and Margo Martindale.
